What is ShopDrop?
ShopDrop is a mobile app that helps savvy fashionistas find sales and promotions at some of today’s top retailers, including Forever 21, Zara and Banana Republic.
How does it work?
Once you log into ShopDrop using your email address, Facebook or Twitter account, you’ll immediately be able to select your favorite stores. You can view them alphabetically, by category or by searching a store name. Once you’ve selected all of your favorites, hit “done,” and view all of the current promos!
What stores does it feature?
ShopDrop features nearly 100 stores and includes both big-name retailers as well as smaller boutiques. Some of my favorites on the list are Aldo, Victoria’s Secret, Urban Outfitters, Intermix and Kate Spade.
What types of sales does it show?
This app alerts users to special promotions, new markdowns and even new arrivals. With a quick search, I found deals such as 40% off clearance merchandise at Club Monoco, $39.99 jeans at Express, 80% off summer items at H&M, and even a coupon code for 25% off at JCrew.com! Don’t feel like logging in and checking the app constantly? No worries! Simply allow the app to send you push notifications, and you’ll instantly be alerted to new promos at your selected stores.
Does ShopDrop do anything else?
Yes! If you happen to live in NYC or plan on visiting the area, you can use ShopDrop to find all of the local sample sales. The app not only gives a description of the sale but the dates/times and even a link to the sample sale website, if available. After checking out the list of current sample sales, which included J.Crew, Rachel Comey and Barney’s, I can’t help but think that a shopping trip may need to be in my near future!
What devices is ShopDrop available on?
ShopDrop is currently available on the iTunes store and requires iOS 7.1 or later.
